Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime starts, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Lexington? Especially if your cooling system is newer or was cooling good last summer.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new car and never anticipate to book any service for it, such as changing the oil or getting new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your unit checked annually by a James Heating & A/C, Inc professional can help find little problems before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outside, it’s more susceptible to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can negatively lower your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a specialist to service intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that build up inside your system can push it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy needs—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it run for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity bill and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify little issues before they become big, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely examine pieces and complete a set of air conditioning performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find issues before they lead to major troubles that lead to a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure trouble-free comfort throughout the summer. After your AC is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your unit is prepped to provide worry-free air. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers expect annual maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your system is vulnerable to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
